Logic X Question involving event list, LPX

    I make backing tracks on LPX, then save as midi files to play on my keyboard, a Roland FP-7F, via thumbdrive.
    I insert program changes (PC) at the top of each track list (beginning of tune) for patch assignments, ie, #32 for acoustic bass, #5 for electric piano....these are general midi patch #'s I assume. All good . It works.
    For the drums I assign midi channel 10, and it results in a generic drum set "patch" on the Roland.
    Once again, all good, but I'd like to access the other drum sets available on the Roland, which are called JAZZ set, ROOM set, ANALOG set, etc, and have PC #'s proceeded by a msb/lsb number set. Ie, JAZZ set, is msb 120, lsb 0, PC #33. But I cannot see how to insert these #'s into the event list. The only column available is called "Num", and I cannot tell what it does, and.....it only goes up to 62.
    Anybody understand this stuff? and can explain it. Got a couple of LPX books, but cannot find an explanation for the "Num" drop down list, and/or cannot figure out if msb/lsb insertion is even possible.
    Long question, I know, but maybe somebody can take a crack at it.
    Thx
    Bud

    Just insert two CC messages.... I think it will default to 7 volume - click and hold on the 7 and you will se 127 entries in the drop down.... CC00 is the MSB and CC32 is the LSB - it will be labelled..... Hope that helps...

    Hey. that's great. It works.
    I didn't really have a clear idea of the intersection of CC's and PC's. but can see now how it fits together.
    ...even found a CC /PC combo that makes the display read "You're Incredible!" , but it's not in the manual.
